Did you know you can access your Frank L. Weyenberg Library from anywhere, any time? I’m not talking about checking our hours or upcoming events on our website (though, of course, you can do that). I’m talking about checking out books, magazines, movies, and music. Go to your app store and install Libby for books and audiobooks, RBDigital for magazines, and Hoopla for books, audiobooks, movies, music (entire albums), television shows, and comics. All free, by the way.

We’re trying to provide you with access to information and materials whenever you want or need it. Still, we don’t want you to forgo library visits altogether. There are some things we can offer only in person, such as scores of activities for children, teens, and adults. Some are group activities and others you will find throughout the library. For instance, have you visited the Teen Department recently? There’s a mosaic poster that needs your help to complete. I can’t tell you what the picture is, because I don’t know yet. Help us finish it and find out.

Relax in our comfortable chairs and read newspapers from near and far. Log on to our computers and explore Ancestry Library Edition, Value Line, and Jewish Data. (Other databases you can access from any internet-accessible device with your Frank L. Weyenberg Library card number).

What would you like to see at your Frank L. Weyenberg Library? Stop in to see me, call 262-242-2593, ext. 331, or email me at . I’d love to hear your ideas.

P.S. Please share this newsletter with others in the community.

Sunday, March 11
2:00 PM

The Weyenberg Public Library Foundation's Fine Arts Series moves to Sundays in 2018! The series opens with the Trinity Irish Dancers on Sunday, March 11 at 2:00 PM.

Since 1982, Trinity Irish Dance has brought the art of Irish Dance to Chicago, the Chicago suburbs, Milwaukee, Madison and more Wisconsin children and their families. Trinity Academy of Irish Dance is one of the most widely-recognized Irish dance programs in the world. For over 35 years, Trinity has been guided by a unique philosophy of instruction and empowerment within a fun environment. Trinity dancers have won an unprecedented 32 world titles for the United States. From beginner through champion level, Trinity's students are taught self-respect, confidence, and to embody grace, hope and enthusiasm while learning the art of Irish dance.

No registration is required for this free program, and all are welcome to attend. Fine Arts Series performances are made possible due to the generosity of the Weyenbeg Public Library Foundation.
